    Yeah. I can’t recall ever seeing someone present a portfolio as a slide deck before and I’ve been hiring designers for at least 14 years.

    It went from a real portfolio (like with a case) until about 2008 when startups went crazy to website portfolios. I generally like portfolios w a well written case study.

      I worked at a large agency for a couple years and it was very common (and encouraged) to present everything, even personal portfolios for internal promotions, in Keynote format. Just a different mindset, whatever works.

        Makes sense in a setting where the pitch often means success or failure. I personally don’t enjoy that dynamic so I think my bias is showing here.
